comment How to parse 汚れた物ででもあるかのように、捨てるように
I'm not sure how to explain that ように, so I'll delete that part of the answer, I think. (Feel free to write your own.)

comment What does it mean when この is in front of a personal pronoun?
I have heard この<speaker's name> in humbling contexts (from maids, servants, butlers, etc), but この<personal pronoun> seems like the opposite, as Yang Muye says... unsure if it's a definite rule though.

comment 実在する “to exist” or “to be real”?
@ssb (The) "One Piece" is a rumored thing inside the manga One Piece. I am pretty sure we are talking about whether that thing exists/is real (within the world of the manga) or is fictional (within the world of the manga).

comment 実在する “to exist” or “to be real”?
I think the question could now be answered in its current form as a language question, with comparison to 存在.

comment 「思う」 in 「その人を私のように 思う」:think v.s. feel
I agree with the linked article's criticisms, and likewise feel that チラリと見える is key to this poem, and I like the mention of "自分もまた他の多くの人にとっては、すれ違うだけの存在なのだ". I prefer the "I considered the person as myself" reading which encourages the reader to place himself in the viewpoint of this person who is entirely irrelevant to the author's life, and realize that he has a rich life of his own, and the author could have been the person on the bench, seeing his current self shoot by on an express train, and paying him even less heed.

comment How would one emulate capitalized letters in Japanese?
May be worth mentioning that this book uses what I would call an unusual amount of typography variation, though.

@TokyoNagoya : (Incidentally, I realize my JP sentence is quite different to "supposed", so if you can think of something that's a bit more direct, let me know so I can edit it in :))

comment Meanings of ちゃんと
@TokyoNagoya : To be clear, my Japanese sentence does not correspond to the OP's Japanese sentence. It is an attempt to represent what the Japanese would have had to say for him to interpret it the way he did. (or conversely, since you cannot use ちゃんと that way, to show one method for how you can express "is ... supposed to...?" in Japanese).

comment How to say “I am unfortunately getting frustrated”
@TokyoNagoya Thanks, I hope I'll learn to trust my feelings eventually :) Nuance is a tricky thing... >< Incidentally I lost all interest in exploring this answer after the edits to the original question which entirely changed its purpose and wasted 4 answers (it originally asked about a specific sentence, now it asks about how to grammatically combine certain verb forms). Fixes to this answer still won't actually answer the question as it stands so...
